Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-expanding platform that furnishes new options to earn money on the Internet. One of these possibilities is to be a domain reseller and offer domain names to end users, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is a growing business niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain includes 2 components - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the best known domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains involve two-character abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that tackles the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each given Top-Level Domain may impose, like the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually offer the domain name to clients and manage all domain name records.

Gain Profit From Offering Domains

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain cash from offering domains to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can commence your own personal electronic business. Typically, a domain will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can reach more individuals in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will earn a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Resell Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will receive a website hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the separate TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide billing management software and web themes for your online store, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the large demand for domains make the domain name reseller industry so seductive. You will either obtain a pre-developed website and make use of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own personal portal and order form. Generally, you have the opportunity to select between the two possibilities, so it all depends on how accomplished you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your very own personal trademark name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Gain Cash From Reselling Web Site Hosting Accounts As Well

A proper supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to customers who desire to build their web portal and demand both a domain and a webspace hosting account. A number of corporations furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and cost-free billing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then sell domains and shared web hosting packages to customers, and since they offer plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to people from all over the world.
